Spinal Cord Injury
West Virginia Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
The human spine is especially vulnerable to any violent impact, such as those created in a car accident, motorcycle crash or a bad fall. Often, the full damage is not realized until weeks or months later. If you suffer neck or back pain, or any loss of sensation after an accident, you should always seek medical treatment immediately. You should also contact an attorney before discussing any insurance settlement.
The personal injury lawyers of Angotti & Straface represent victims of back injury, neck injury and spinal cord damage. Our Morgantown law firm has represented clients throughout West Virginia. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.
Spinal Cord Injury and Spine Injury
We have recovered damages for the full spectrum of injuries to the spine:
- Paralysis (quadriplegia or paraplegia)
- Loss of mobility or loss of sensation
- Herniated disc (ruptured disc)
- Lower back injury
- Neck injury
- Chronic, debilitating pain
Attorneys John Angotti and David Straface have over 45 years of combined experience in these cases. They work with doctors to learn the extent of damage, connect it to the accident, and assess the future medical needs of clients. A catastrophic spinal cord injury may mean surgeries, wheelchairs and medical equipment, as well as modifications to the home to accommodate a permanent disability.
We consult with vocational experts and physical therapists to determine if the victim is able to return to work or perform another type of job. We then work with economists to project the lost income over a lifetime. If we cannot reach a settlement with the insurance companies, our accomplished trial lawyers are always prepared to go to court to get full compensation.
We pursue maximum damages to cover not only future care and lost earning capacity, but damages for pain and suffering, mental anguish and reduced quality of life.
